4 D's of Holiday Cleaning

The 4 D’s of Winter Cleaning

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Cleaning, Cleaning Tips

Everyone Knows About Spring Cleaning… But What About Winter Cleaning?

 

So many people wait until spring to begin their annual cleaning routine. Why is that? The hustle and bustle of the holidays make it the most important time to have your home clean and orderly. For a sparkling house this winter season, D’s Cleaning Service has prepared the four D’s of winter cleaning to ensure your home looks as fresh as newly fallen snow.

 

  1. Declutter What You Don’t Need

The holidays are a time for giving and receiving. Make room for the new gifts that you will be receiving and get rid of the items you no longer need or use. In fact, you can even stick to the spirit of the season and you can even donate those unwanted items to a person in need. Once you declutter your home, you can bring those unwanted items that are still useable to a donation box within the Baton Rouge area.

The best places to start decluttering are:

  • Closets
  • The Garage
  • Cabinets
  • Under Furniture
  • The Attic

 

  1. Disinfect to Make Your Home HealthyClean linens after winter cleaning

With the colder season coming, the season of viruses and illnesses is not far behind. As you are preparing for the winter holidays, you want to be sure that you are healthy so you can celebrate the festivities with friends and family. After all, you don’t want to miss any of the holiday parties or feasts that you may have scheduled.

There are so many areas of your home that would benefit from a disinfecting scrub to remove bacteria and viruses. However, the most important places to clean include:

  • Bath Tubs and Showers
  • Sinks
  • Countertops
  • Kitchen Appliances
  • Door Knobs
  • Blankets and Bed Sheets

 

  1. Dust Away the Dirt and Dander

Just like how disinfecting is important to keep your home free from pathogens that can make you sick, dusting is just as important to rid your home of allergens. Because people tend to bundle up inside their homes during the wintertime, it is a good idea to make sure that dusting is a priority on your winter cleaning checklist. This is to make sure you can snuggle up in your favorite blanket without the extra sneezing and wheezing.

Dust hides in several places around the home. Perhaps the most common places dust hides in your house are:

  • Window Blinds
  • Ceiling Fans
  • Shelves and Cabinets

 

  1. Deep Clean the Floorsa person winter cleaning by mopping the floors

Tiles, wood, and carpet all need extra cleaning from time to time. Deep cleaning your floors goes beyond your routine sweeping and vacuuming. A good wash before the winter holidays will make your floors look like new and overall give a refreshed feeling to your home.

To effectively remove stains, dirt and grime from your floors, try:

  • Vacuuming Under Furniture
  • Shampooing or Steaming Carpets
  • Mopping Tiles and Hardwoods
  • Polishing Hardwoods

Although different floor types each need a different method of deep cleaning, it is important to properly dry your floors after they have been washed to prevent mold and mildew.

The Best Retail Cleaning Service in Baton Rouge Helps You Impress Your Customers

Baton Rouge is bursting with retail stores, and your one-of-a-kind shop deserves to be treated with special care. Keeping your store clean and tidy is important to impress your customers and keep them coming back to buy your specially selected products. At D’s Cleaning Service, we cater to boutiques and shops with specialty services so you can put your best foot forward. From your selling floor to your display shelves, we ensure your shop will be as beautiful as the first time you opened your doors.

 

Polished Floors and Clean Carpet

Your selling floor is the most important space in your store because it’s the place that your customers see on a daily basis. From scuffs and dust on hardwood floors to dirt and stains in the carpet, these small but noticeable blemishes can be huge problems for your customers. Just as a home reflects a person’s personality, a store reflects the quality of its products. Customers want to know that the products they are purchasing are clean and taken care of. Show your customers you take pride in your items and store with a clean and well-maintained selling floor.

D’s Cleaning Service can get your floors back to looking like new with our exceptional floor and carpet cleaning services. We’re experts in maneuvering around display racks and cases while ensuring every square inch is cleaned. After D’s Cleaning Service visits your store, your customers will be impressed with its cleanliness.

 

Shoes on a display shelf cleaned by retail cleanersDust-Free Display Shelves

Your display shelves hold many goodies that your customers love to browse through and possibly try on or purchase. A layer of dust on your merchandise or even just on the shelves can leave your customers turning away in disgust. To get more transactions, you need to showcase your items in the best light.  Simply put, your display shelves need to be sparkling clean and dust-free to ensure the best shopping experience for your customers.

At D’s Cleaning Service, dusting comes as part of our general cleaning service, so you can be sure your shelves will be crystal clean after every time we visit. With precision tools and an expert eye, we reach every part of the shelf without disturbing your merchandise.

 

Disinfected Bathrooms

Whether it’s for your employees or for your customers, a clean bathroom is a must for comfort and safety. Many germs can live on toilets, handles, and bathroom floors and the last thing you want to do is cause your employees or customers discomfort while in your store by forcing them to use a dirty bathroom. You especially don’t want to cause them to become ill because your bathroom isn’t sanitized.

As part of the standard retail cleaning service, we clean and sanitize your bathroom from top to bottom. No germs stand a chance against D’s Cleaning Service as we use industrial grade cleaners to ensure bacteria and germs are removed from surfaces. Nothing but a disinfected bathroom is left when we clean your shop.

 

Clean Checkout CountersRetail worker at a checkout counter that was cleaned by retail cleaners

Customers continually come up to your checkout counters either to ask for help or to purchase items. Whether you have a glass counter that is prone to fingerprints or a wooden or another type of counter that may show dirt and grime, keeping your counter clean is a must to impress customers. Since no customer wants to put their perfectly selected merchandise on a dirty counter, ensuring it is fingerprint and grime free should be your top priority. As a shop owner, however, you may not have time to be constantly wiping down your counters when there are books to balance and customers to help.

That’s where we come in. D’s Cleaning Service wipes down and sanitizes surfaces such as counters and desks. Whether you need us to clean during your slow hours or before you even open, we can remove all dirt and grime from your store’s surface tops for a cleaner space for both you and your customers.

When it comes to cleaning shops and boutiques in Baton Rouge, no one does it better than D’s Cleaning Service. Call us today to schedule your first retail cleaning service at the time that works best for your schedule.

Office Pets Don’t Have to Make a Mess. Keep Your Office Clean with an Office Pet.

The trend of office pets is on the rise. After all, they decrease stress, improve morale, and are cuddly cuties that brighten everyone’s day. With more office pets gracing the halls of commercial buildings everywhere, it’s time to ask whether or not your office is clean enough for your employees with an animal on the loose. From your carpets to your kitchen, there are certain areas in your business that you need to keep extra clean when you have an office pet, and D’s Cleaning Service is here to help you do just that.

 

cat office pet in the kitchenKitchen

Your employees eat at work on a regular basis and let’s be honest, dogs, cats, and other animals aren’t known for being the cleanest creatures. Whether they track in dirt from outside or just jump on the counters after walking around in the office, an animal in the kitchen is not sanitary. Your kitchen is already one of the dirtiest places in your office, so keeping it clean while adding in a pet is an extra challenge. You’ll need to do something about the bacteria, food crumbs, and germs that lurk on the counters and tables where your employees eat and prepare food.

To keep your employees healthy, D’s Cleaning Services puts special care into cleaning your company’s kitchen, especially when you have an office pet. From wiping away germs on the counters to sanitizing tables, your company’s kitchen will be spotless after we clean even when you have roaming pets.

 

Carpetsoffice pet sleeping on the carpet

While pets do a lot for moral, they sometimes can hurt your employees’ overall health. According to Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America, more than 50 million Americans suffer from allergies each year and six out of 10 are exposed to cat or dog dander regularly. With so many people suffering from allergies, having an office pet could be causing some of your employees to suffer symptoms such as scratchy eyes, congestion, skin rashes, coughing and more. The Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America, suggests improving air quality by vacuuming, dusting, and washing.

At D’s Cleaning Service, we can help improve air quality by cutting down on pet dander with services including general cleaning, carpet shampooing, and dusting.

 

Windows

First impressions are important, and pets can make great ones when they greet visitors with a tail wag or a friendly meow. Unfortunately, your office pet can also cause you to make a bad first impression with untidy office windows. Nose prints on the doors and windows from your furry friend don’t always look that great to visiting business partners or clients. You can end up looking a little unprofessional with smudges on all your glass. D’s Cleaning Service cleans all those smudges away so your pets and your clients have a clear view.

When you have D’s Cleaning Service as your commercial cleaner, you won’t need to worry about keeping your office clean even when you have an office pet. Keep loving your office pet and all the joy it brings while keeping your office clean by calling us today.

 

Are Cleaning and Disinfecting the Same Thing?

Are Cleaning and Disinfecting the Same Thing?

Know the Difference Between Cleaning and Disinfecting to Improve Your Regular Cleaning Routine

When people use the phrase, “the floor is so clean that you could eat food off of it” they are giving the highest compliment they can give on the state of the floors. While most people who say this would not actually eat their meals from the floor, it still seems important to clarify that there is, in fact, a difference between a surface being cleaned and one being disinfected. While cleaning and disinfecting do go hand in hand, there is a difference in what the two accomplish. So, if you think that a floor looks so clean that you could eat from it, think again.

 

Cleaning and disinfecting products use different chemicalsCleaning and Disinfecting Products Use Different Chemicals

Cleaning products are generally soap-based cleaning products that work well to remove dirt and grime. They can also remove some germs from surfaces, but in order to get that healthy clean your home or office needs, it’s best to use a disinfectant. A disinfectant will eliminate the germs and bacteria that can easily spread from surface to surface. In order to eliminate these microorganisms, you need a product that is designed to eliminate them from surfaces.

Cleaning and disinfecting products use different chemical ingredients in order to be effective in what they need to remove. Several cleaning products that claim to be used for both a cleaning and disinfecting may not always be as powerful as you may think. Professional cleaning companies such as D’s Cleaning Service take the time to separate their cleaning and disinfecting efforts to maximize their efforts in eliminating dirt, grime, and germs from your home or place of business.

 

Germs and Visible Grime Are Not Cleaned the Same Way

Just because a surface appears clean does not necessarily mean that it is free from germs and pathogens that can make you sick. If you spill something on your counters that leaves a smelly, sticky residue such as maple syrup, you would use a cleaner that would remove the mess from sight. The same goes for other stains you may have on carpets, clothes, and any other surface. Germs, however, cannot be seen and cannot be removed the same way. Pathogens require more powerful agents to be properly removed, which is why disinfectants are necessary to use whenever someone has a virus or any kind of infection that can spread from person to person.

 

Always Clean Before You DisinfectClean before you disinfect for a clean room

Whenever you are needing to eliminate the germs from your home or office, cleaning and disinfecting go hand in hand. In order to effectively disinfect your surroundings, you must clean first. Disinfectants require a clean surface so the chemicals can reach the germs whereas regular cleaning is a one-step process.

To clean and disinfect properly, start by wiping down the area with a cleaning product to remove the dust and grime buildup on the surfaces. This will give your home or office surfaces a clean appearance. Once the surfaces have that sparkling clean, use a disinfectant to properly erase the germs and pathogens to reduce the risk of illnesses from spreading and reproducing.

If your home or workplace needs a proper cleaning and disinfecting, call D’s Cleaning Service to give your place an extra shine and create a healthier environment. Using, industrial grade cleaning and disinfecting products, your floors and surfaces will be so clean and germ-free that you could eat off of them.

Benefits of a Professional Carpet Cleaning

Save Time and Refresh Your Carpets with Professional Carpet Cleaning Services

Your carpets endure a lot of foot traffic on a day to day basis. Dust and dirt get trapped within the carpet fibers, and over time, the fabric starts to lose its softness. Every now and then, carpets need a deep cleaning to restore the color, texture, and freshness while removing the stains and allergens that are locked deep within. When your carpet needs refreshing, there’s nothing like a professional carpet cleaning to get your floors feeling like new again.

 

Professional carpet cleaning machineNo Need to Handle Heavy Equipment and Machinery Yourself

Many people try to clean their carpets themselves as there is heavy-duty cleaning equipment that you can buy for your carpet cleanings. However, the equipment is bulky and hard to store in a proper place, not to mention expensive for equipment you will only use a few times a year. Even renting a carpet cleaner can be a headache. The amount of time it would take to go to a hardware store, rent the machine, buy the cleaner, make room for it in your car, and then actually go to clean your carpets is time you could be spending doing something else.

Professional carpet cleanings from experienced cleaners at D’s Cleaning Service not only removes the need for you to handle the machinery but also saves you time. As we clean your carpets, you are able to focus on doing other activities such as run errands or complete other chores you have on your to-do list.

 

Less Risk of Damaging Your Carpet

One common mistake of cleaning your carpet yourself instead of having a professional do it is the small details that can become a big problem. For example, if you over-saturate your carpets with water, you could end up with damaged carpets or fungal growth. Using the proper standard industry equipment and cleaning products, professional cleaners know exactly how to deep clean carpet without the risk of causing mold and mildew growth.

Many people have tried to deep clean their carpets to save money. However, there is a handful of them who have ended up further damaging their carpets. Whether from mold or other damages, improperly cleaning your carpet can result in you having to replace your entire flooring. When you’re looking to give your carpets a deep clean, it’s always best to trust professional carpet cleaners for the job.

 

Carpet in a living room Professional Cleaners Have the Expertise to Effectively Clean and Extend the Life of Your Carpet

A quality cleaning company is equipped with the training and experience to know exactly how to properly deep clean carpet, which in turn will make your carpet last much longer. The buildup of dust, dirt, and other debris wears down the fibers in your carpet, causing them to be less resistant to the regular wear and tear.

When you choose D’s Cleaning Service, we ensure that your carpet will be in the best condition and last you for years to come. Our professional carpeting cleaning service washes your carpet from top to bottom, leaving it as soft and fresh as the day you bought it.

Remove Dust from Your Home by Checking 4 Forgotten Places

Remove Dust from Your Home by Checking 4 Forgotten Places

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Cleaning Tips

Remove Dust from Your Home by Remembering These Often-Forgotten Dusty Spots

Dust is everywhere. It lurks on family pictures, fireplace mantels, and bookshelves all the time. These easy-to-spot and clean areas are usually not a problem for homeowners as they can easily run a dusting cloth over the areas to remove the fine dirt. Dust, however, doesn’t just settle on items in open areas. Dust can be sneaky and continue to cause problems for your family such as allergy flair ups if not removed.

 

Dust Hides in the Vents

Take a look at your vents. Do you see some buildup on the vent covers? That buildup is proof that dust and dirt are being blown through your vents and throughout your home on a regular basis when and that your vent systems aren’t clean. If your family is experiencing heavy allergy symptoms, even during the off season, it might be a good idea to see if your vents need to be cleaned. Mold, dust, and debris can live in your vents and continually cause problems for your family.

To prevent heavy build up in your vents, make sure you regularly change the air filter on your system to help cut down on dust that blows into your home. Filters that are certified to stop dust, allergens, and pet dander will also help prevent unwanted dust from entering your house.

 

Dust Hides on Your Window Blindsdust hides on your window blinds in your home

It’s no secret that dust settles on flat surfaces like window blinds but knowing the dust is there and cleaning it off are two different stories. Window blinds tend to be a pain to clean. With so many slats and the strings preventing you from doing a clean sweep through, it’s easier for homeowners to turn a blind eye to the dusty window blinds.

On the other hand, dusty blinds can be a big eyesore and may cause some embarrassment when guests come to visit. To help keep your home and blinds dust free without the chore, a cleaning service may be the solution you need. Cleaning services such as D’s Cleaning Service, cannot only dust your blinds on a regular basis but also deep clean them to keep the blinds looking like new for longer.

 

Dust Hides on Your FansDust hides on your fans in your home

After keeping the fans turned off all winter long, there’s no question that dust has piled onto a fan’s blades. Flipping the fans on in the summer without dusting them first can end in a raining dust cloud. If there’s an extended period of time in which you don’t use your fans on a regular basis, be sure to dust them off before turning them on. A simple swipe over your fan blades can prevent dust from settling onto other surfaces and in your carpet.

 

Dust Hides in Your Carpet

Your carpet holds a lot of dust and dirt. While homeowners vacuum as often as they can to cut down on the dust within their carpet, there is only so much a vacuum can do. Even the super high-end vacuums with maximum suction power can’t remove all the dust and dirt from carpet when it is ingrained deep within. When it comes to removing dirt from your carpets and rugs, a deep carpet cleaning is the best way to go.

Professional carpet cleanings that focus on deep cleaning your home scrub, wash, and lift dust and dirt from your carpet with industrial grade machines. When you want your carpet to look like new and be as clean as when you first got it, call D’s Cleaning Service. Your home will feel 10times cleaner after your carpets are washed and the dust lifted.

When you want a clean house and better air quality, buckling down on the hidden dust and dirt within your home can make a big difference. Call D’s Cleaning Service if you need help keeping the dust at bay and see how we not only help you cut down on dust but also help keep your home cleaner overall.

How to Clean Your Cleaning Supplies

How to Clean Your Cleaning Tools

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Uncategorized

Maximize Your Cleaning Efforts by Giving Your Cleaning Tools Their Own Cleaning Routine

When it comes to cleaning your home or office, having the right cleaning tools can help you take care of the job. From sweeping up dirt to washing away grime, your cleaning tools are your trusted sidekicks in eliminating stains and dirt and making your place sparkle. However, after a while, your cleaning supplies start to lose their effectiveness. In fact, each time you use one of your cleaning equipment, there is always a good bit of germs, bacteria, and residue that lingers on the item.

Unfortunately, your cleaning tools are not resistant to the grime that you are using them to scrub away. In order to get the most out of your cleaning efforts, you need to take extra time to clean your cleaning gadgets.

 

Clean your brooms to prevent spreading bacteria

Brooms and Dusters Deserve a Deep Clean Every Now and Then

Cleaning tools used to wipe up dirt and dust, such as a broom or a duster, are generally the easiest products to disinfect. If you are using a broom or duster to sweep around your home or office, be sure to give it a good shakedown after every use. Shaking it out will get rid of the remaining dirt and dust that is hiding between the bristles or feathers. Of course, you will want to remove the excess dust outdoors so that you don’t mess up your freshly swept place.

However, in order to make your broom or duster last, you should also give it a good deep clean every now and then. About once a month, give your cleaning tool an extra spruce by soaking it in warm water and dish soap for about 15 to 30 minutes. Afterward, rinse the broom or duster with regular water and allow it to air dry upside down before using it again.

 

Vacuum Models Might Be Different but They All Need to Be Cleaned

One of the biggest problems with cleaning a vacuum is that every brand and model is different, which means every vacuum needs to be cleaned differently. To find how to specifically clean your vacuum, check the owner’s manual for instructions. However, there are cleaning methods you can do that works for most vacuum models.

While you should empty out your vacuum bag on a regular basis, what people tend to overlook is removing the dirt and dander from the brush roller. Not only does this slow down the brush’s rotation but also makes your vacuum less effective. About every other month, get a pair of pliers or scissors and cut the messy strands and remove them from the roller. This will ensure that you are getting the most use out of your vacuum.

 

House Cleaning ConceptSponges Can Also Be Cleaned but Still Need to Be Replaced Often

People often throw away sponges after a few uses because of the leftover food particles and grime that ends up getting stuck inside the sponge’s pores. Not only do sponges trap traces of the grime that it cleaned, but they also are riddled with germs and bacteria. While sponges are still one of those cleaning tools that need to be replaced monthly, there are ways to clean your sponge so you get the best clean out of it.

One of the best and easiest ways to clean your spongey cleaning tool is through the microwave. Place a wet sponge in the microwave on high for one to two minutes. The microwave burns off most germs and bacteria, which makes your cleaning tool just as effective as its first use. While this method does work to clean your sponge, it will still lose its effectiveness after about 30 uses and should be replaced to maintain sanitary standards.

If you have fallen behind on cleaning your cleaning tools or never cleaned them before, your home or office could be masked with dirt and germs that are still lingering around from the dirty cleaning tools. To properly disinfect your home or office, call D’s Cleaning Services today and give it the boost it needs to be free from germs and grime. You’ll get the break you need to properly clean your cleaning tools and get back into your cleaning routine with a refreshed and properly disinfected home or office.

 

 

 

 

Tips for leasing your office

Tips for Leasing Your Office

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Business

Your Office Space for Rent Will Go Faster When You Keep These Tips in Mind

You’re wanting to lease your empty office building to increase your monthly income but no one seems interested in signing the lease. In the world of business, looks matter. Companies want to rent an office space they can be proud to show off to their clients and invite them in for a meeting. If you are having trouble renting out your office, it may be time to do something with the space. Follow these tips for leasing your office space and rent it out faster than ever.

 

Upgrade your office to rent it out fasterUpgrade Your Office Space to Rent Faster

Take a look around the office building you want to rent out. Is it nice and modern or old and dated? Business owners want updated appliances and facilities just as much as homeowners do. They want their employees to enjoy coming to work in an appealing building, and they want their clients to be impressed by how advanced their office looks.

If you are having a hard time renting your office space, it may be time to look at the appliances and general assets of the space and consider making some updates. Modernize the kitchen and bathroom areas and get rid of anything that dates the building such as popcorn ceilings, metal blinds, worn rugs, old wall paper, and faded paint. This will instantly give you a better chance of renting out your office space.

 

Fix-up the Outside to Make a Good First ImpressionClean the outside of your office to rent it faster

If you don’t have the time or money to update the building, you should at least make sure it is clean and presentable. Nothing will turn a potential leaser away faster than dirt, grime, and messes. Think about it, any potential renter who comes and sees a dirty office will already think you won’t be a good landlord.

To start the first impression off right, have the outside of your office building touched up and cleaned. Pressure wash the building and sidewalk areas for a fresh look. In addition, repair any damaged siding, railings, or other damaged pieces to ensure your building looks safe and well-kept. A clean outside will ensure you get to show them the inside as well, where you can present more features and selling points.

 

Deep Clean the Office Space to Increase Viewings

The last and most important step to renting your office building quickly is ensuring the inside is sparkling with a deep clean. Employers want a safe, clean, and healthy environment for their employees to maximize productivity. A dirty and unsanitary space will turn them away instantly.

Have your office deep cleaned by a professional such as D’s Cleaning Service to ensure a ready-to-move-in space for possible renters. Carpets, bathrooms, kitchens, blinds, windows, and hard floors should be deep cleaned and sanitized to showcase the space available.

When you are having trouble renting out your office building, make sure your space is up-to-date and clean. Companies want a nice space to work in just as much as homeowners want a nice place to live in. Call D’s Cleaning Service to ensure your office building is clean and ready to show to potential renters.
